Thus, teachers’ knowledge on the content and the ability to read literatures is a must (Bechervaise as cited by Carter & Quinell, 2012).
Accordingly, the capacity to read the content is one of the key parts of educating and learning mathematics which includes a top to bottom connection with the content. It is contended that when reading abilities are inadequate, various issues happen which prompt hindrance in learning (Callahan & Clark, 1988; Bender et al., 2008; Norris & Phillips, 2003 as cited by Imam et al., 2010).
Consequently, due to teachers’ lack of knowledge in the subject matter, the learning of learners was affected. Attorps, a teacher in University of Helsinki, have seen that numerous students at the college have issues with the comprehension of mathematical ideas and symbols.
